Hiring a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Hiring a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Here are excerpts regarding costs from a March 2000 article in Medical Economics:


“Yes, they are handy to have around, especially since they can do most of what primary care doctors do at one-third to one-half the salaries.”
“And the physicians who hire them benefit greatly. Patients triaged to NPs and PAs are often happier because their visits are longer and they can get same-day appointments. Without a knot of patients in their waiting rooms, physicians are less harried—and many make money on each patient the NP or PA sees.”
“Primary care PAs in multi-specialty groups gross slightly more than $3 for every $1 in compensation, according to the Medical Group Management Association. Internists, in contrast, gross slightly more than twice their compensation. If an NP or PA produces $30,000 in annual profit—an attainable figure, according to the MGMA—the physician practice partners can divide that money among themselves.” more... see the Primary Care Resources link, Benefits to Hiring a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.
